There’s a lot going on at this weekend’s A Taste of Greece festival in Chandler.
Live music. Folk dancing. Arts and crafts. Shopping. Kid’s activities.
But let’s face it: The biggest draw is the food.
We’re talking about dolmathes (grape leaves stuffed with ground beef and seasoned rice), spanakopita (filo dough filled with spinach and cheeses), souvlakia (shish kabobs), and pastitsio (Greek lasagna).
For those with a sweet tooth, there will be baklava (filo dough filled with nuts and spices), kourabiedes (shortbread-like cookies), and loukoumades (pastry puffs with honey and cinnamon).
And that’s just a sampling of what will be available Friday through Sunday at St. Katherine’s Greek Orthodox Church on Dobson just south of Elliot.
Part of the festival will be outdoors, but there will be an air-conditioned dining hall with live music.
Hours are 5-10 p.m. Friday, 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Saturday, and 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday.
Admission is just $3. (You can get two free tickets by liking the fest’s Facebook page here.)
